ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A former New Mexico couple has been sentenced to five years of supervisory probation after pleading guilty to embezzlement and tax evasion charges in a case that involved the theft of hundreds of thousands of dollars from an Albuquerque family business.

State authorities say 37-year-old Antoinette Greenlee and her husband, 48-year-old James Greenlee Jr., were sentenced last week.

In addition to probation, they must pay restitution to the woman’s father for embezzling money from his construction materials business.

A criminal complaint says the couple stole $874,000 from Post-Tensioning Reinforcing Services during an 18-month period in 2010 and 2011 while they worked for the company.

The Greenlees, who now live in Texas and operate their own steel business, also failed to pay state income taxes on the embezzled income.
